NACEL Energy Submits Long Term Power Supply Bid to AEPSC

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - NACEL Energy Corporation (OTCBB: NCEN) (FRANKFURT: 4FC) today announced it submitted a comprehensive bid with the input of a tier-one wind turbine manufacturer for the supply of 20 MW of clean, renewable energy, from the Company's Leila Lake wind project located in Donley County, Texas, to American Electric Power Service Corporation (AEPSC), a subsidiary of American Electric Power Company of Columbus, OH, one of nation's largest electric utilities.

On June 1, 2009, AEPSC issued a formal request for the provision of 1100 MW of new renewable energy to its seven utility subsidiaries, including Southwestern Electric which serves east Texas (the location of NACEL Energy's Leila Lake project), Arkansas and Louisiana. AEPSC requested bids be received by January 15, 2010, for projects in-service before December 31, 2011. All power supplied by successful bidders is expected to be contracted with AEPSC under long term 20 year power purchase agreements.

AEPSC will announce its short list decision March 1, 2010.

NACEL Energy Chief Executive Officer Paul Turner, Ph.D. stated:

"Since we announced Leila Lake (see Company's 8-K filed July 1, 2009) we have made significant progress. We first installed a 200ft. NRG Systems meteorological tower to quantify the Class 4 wind resource prevalent in the Texas Panhandle. We then submitted our plan of electrical interconnection (see Company's 8-K filed December 9, 2009) and completed additional important engineering work related to wind turbine placement and power collection. In preparing the AEPSC bid, we obtained the input of a tier-one manufacturer, whose turbines, based upon our review, are ideally suited to the wind characteristics at Leila Lake. We also engaged Delenova Energy LLC to study the potential impacts of 20 MW of new wind power on the electrical grid generated from Leila Lake. The results were favorable, demonstrating no adverse impacts.
